It was working perfectly until I hit the pause button. When I hit it, it turned off immediately. Now whenever I turn it on, it stays on for a few seconds after the display goes away and then turns off....

I believe that the tape must have fowled up and the mechanism has gone haywire and now out of sync. Every video has a mode switch. This tells the electronics what position the mechanism is in. However if the mechanism develops a fault, the mode switch will no longer be able to tell the electronics the true position and thus chaos develops, so the whole thing shuts down. You need to investigate to see if the tape is entangled or damage has occurred.

Dome light stays on and door open sign is on

this problem is caused by the courtesy light switch being defective in one of the 4 doors, the switch is attached to the door latch inside the door so access is not easy as the door panels must be removed, the dealer has a scan tool that can quickly ID electronically which switch is causing the problem.

JVC Gr HD1 power/record button fell off and tape stuck inside

I have a solution posted on replacing the button in another Question but as far as your question; If you still have the button you can pop it back in (push in and hold tight) and move it to the position to turn it on. Once it's on you don't have to hold it in to keep the camera on. Only switching it to the off position will turn it off. Let me know if you lost the button and I can give you a work around for that (even if you still have the button and are jamming it in there but it's not working my workaround could help).

Turn on, hold is displyed then it turns off quickly

There are 2 ways you can go about fixing this:

1st is the proper method - After unscrewing the screws near the usb head, take off the cover. Near the jack input area is another small screw, take it out. You can now take out the main board by pulling away from the jack and up. Take a look at the but end, where all the copper foil is. Do NOT remove the copper foil or the tape around, it is your ground (protects your chip if sparked). If you see a blue t shape thing that is your switch. If you don't, check answer 2. This blue T switch has to have the base of the T in-between the 2 forks on your hold switch. After fiddling for a while you will get it and then just screw everything back together.

2nd method - You will need some metallic wire and tape. IF you do use this method you can NOT use the hold function, unless your are skilled at fiddling with wire. You will have tak some of the wire and make an oval ring shaped hole with it. Press the wire ring through the hole below the copper foil. you want to press the ring upwards. Press the power button and make sure it is in the proper position. If not then fiddle around until you get it.Once you have achieved the position tape the ring down in it's position. Turn on the mp3, if it works good, you now get to re-assemble. If not then, go back and fiddle with the wire and tape again. (You might achieve the same goal if the wire is straight BUT the wire moves easier). Once it is all back together turn it on one last time and if it works embrace the hard work you just did. If not, sorry to say, go back to step 2 and start over again.

***Both Methods Work***
*I did both and my own unit still works*

Dryer wont stay on... it appears to have intermittent heat.

You have a broken belt. This dryer is complimacated but here goes.Remove the console screwsand flip the control panel upwards simular to what they do on washers. Remove the 3 screw in the rear that hold the top and get the top off. Pop the bottom panel and back off the screws holding the front on then remove the screws from inside the top. You can get the front off now. Get the drum out and clean out the dryer. Oil all 4 wheels and idler. You will note the micro switch below the idler. that stops the drum from turning when the belt breaks. You will be a pro if you can fix this one.
